These three local businesses are generating some exciting buzz.

Offering a full range of forestry and outside maintenance services for both residential and commercial properties, Korte Tree Care prides itself on having a well-trained staff that uses specialized equipment to make every aspect of its work efficient and affordable.

“I enjoy running Korte Tree Care because I like trees and plants. We all get to be outside most of the time, we get to meet a lot of new local people every week, and when we finish our jobs, we can see what we accomplished and that things look nicer than they did before. There’s a tangible connection to the work and the customers.”

Mid-Mo Dents offers customers honest and excellent service at a fair price. While the shop specializes in paint-less dent repair, it also offers other services, including paint touch-ups, headlight restoration, and auto detailing.

“The best part of what we do at Mid-Mo Dents is making customers love their cars again. It could be a mom’s car with three kids that needs a complete interior clean so she can feel sane again, or it could be a show car and we get to polish it to a mirror finish. Seeing their reactions makes it all worth it, and we definitely appreciate the continued trust and support.”

Supporting local hospice programs, The Butterfly Treasure Hospice Resale Shop offers preloved and new clothing, accessories, housewares, knickknacks, art, jewelry, books, and small furniture. People can also now donate to the shop again with all donations qualifying as tax deductible.

“What I love most about the store is the opportunity to educate and advocate for terminally ill Missourians and their families. Through the generous donations of our local community, we are able to support individuals at (the) end of life. By donating or shopping at our store, you are making a difference.”
